    I’m currently creating a site using Metro Pro.

    I’d like for a video (vimeo or youtube, I can use whatever works) to show up in the primary featured image on the home page. It’d be PERFECT if it could play from there rather than just being a screen capture that clicks through to a post page.

    I’ve read multiple discussion on this issue and have tried a few methods. The one that seems to have some promise is http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/featured-video/ as instructed in another post. It seems to be “working” in the dashboard but once published, nothing is showing up on the site.

    Any suggestions? I’d love to find a solution using Metro Pro, but I’m open to switching to another theme if it creates a suitable solution. Responsive design is the only absolute requirement. Thanks in advance for your help!

    As a follow up to help others, I received some help from Andrea by submitting a support ticket.

    She suggested I used a text widget to display the video. So in the Widget area I took out the “Featured Post” widget in Home – Top. I then added a Text widget with my embedded video code. I’ve tested, both Vimeo and YouTube embed codes work.

    I then added another Text Widget below my “Video” Text Widget to display the copy that I wanted posted below the video. Within that copy I was able to link to other areas, posts, and pages inside the site.
